'74 B of Richard Winslow from Seal Beach, California

I bought this car on my wife's birthday about 30 years ago in Michigan. Son had a small accident driving it on his 16th birthday that resulted in minor repairs and a new, great paint job. We campaigned it at many car shows including a trip to Watkins Glenn. We participated in Autocross and Track Days at GingerMan, Grattan and Waterford Hills racetracks in Michigan; a Brighton, Michigan to London, Ontario Run with the Windsor-Detroit MG Club; many Birthday Parties with John Twist in Grand Rapids, Michigan; many British Car Shows at Gilmore Automobile Museum with the Mad Dogs Car Faire; and the final English Day On The Green at Henry Ford's Greenfield Village.

We modified the engine and suspension for performance. I had an "off track incident" which found me briefly upside down on the grass (I had installed a roll bar for my son's sake) but it rolled itself back on its wheels. I tore off what was left of the windshield and drove it home where we again replaced a fender and fixed the rest. Gave it to my son for a wedding present and he brought it here to California, and drove it at Button Willow but he had to sell it during his divorce. He sold it to someone with a right of first refusal about 10 years ago. Guess what? We just bought it back and are having it shipped from Georgia.

In addition to comp. springs in front, heaver sway bars, comp. shock valves, DCOE Weber carb. and Piper cam. It now has a cross flow head and headers thanks to the last owner. One of the modifications I most enjoy is having shortened the shift lever (cut out 1.75" and re-welded so as to not lose the threads for the shift knob.) It places the knob right at hand, and shortens the throw to "just right." I think everyone who isn't a stickler for "original" would appreciate doing this minor improvement.
